One of the great illusions in our life is to be addicted to busyness, it gives us the feeling of being productive, but are we really? There are so many demands in our lives that it becomes very easy to lose focus.Then there is the information overload or all kinds of other activities.

It’s not always easy to SAY NO to less important activities when we should  SAY YES to our most important projects. It requires constant vigilance. Many years ago, I read a great book  that explain how to choose our priorities.

The title is First Things First  by Stephen Covey.

First Things First

I encourage you not only to read this book, but to study it seriously.

In my opinion, this is one of the best books on life and time management ever written.

The time that we waste will never come back.

I repeat; the time that we waste will never come back!


It is a sad reality but it is also a great wake-up call.

How do you make sure that you don’t waste too much precious time?

How do you keep the focus on your most important projects?

How do you know that you spend your time on what you really care about?
